I suppose the incompetent and illegitimate Trump Administration thought it would give Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer a break from internet scorn as it sent senior policy adviser Stephen Miller out to peddle Twitler’s lies.
From thoroughly debunked allegations of “voter fraud” to ridiculously unsubstantiated claims that thousands of voters were bused into New Hampshire to illegally cast ballots, to the laughable assertion that Sean Spicer’s statements are “‘true and important’ and ‘always 100% correct’, it’s clear that Miller’s appearance on ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulus was evidence that Republicans think the American people are stupid enough to believe their lies if the lies are incessantly repeated.
To his credit, Stephanopoulos didn’t let Miller’s lies stink up the air unchallenged, continuously noting there is zero evidence of voter fraud.
The Washington Post gave Miller a “bushel of Pinocchios,” as the rest of the internet joined the fray against today’s lie from the Orange Menace, challenging the Trump monstrosity to produce the evidence they know does not exist.
For example, United States Federal Election Commissioner, Ellen Weintraub tweeted:

New Hampshire Senator, Jean Shaheen jumped in:
As everybody knows, Stephen Miller has no evidence of voter fraud in NH. This has been debunked. @realDonaldTrump didn't call for a recount
— Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (@SenatorShaheen) February 12, 2017
While we’re all shaking our heads at their brazen lies, let’s remember that lying is a tried and true fascist tactic. While we debunk the lies, they’re passing voter restrictions aimed at usurping popular will and solidifying their illegitimate power.

I wasn’t the only one to note the fascist strain in today’s GOP:

Check out some more tweets, below.
Stephen Miller and the Trump White House are continuing their false voter fraud narrative. Only 4 cases of fraud were found, 3 voted Trump.

.@chucktodd asks Stephen Miller about Flynn and he replies, "They did not give me anything to say." Meaning the WH.

Stephen Miller said it's an undisputed fact that 14% of non-citizens are registered to vote.
He lied: https://t.co/gOHd34FnaR

We can add Stephen Miller to the list of pathological liars in the WH who have no idea how checks & balances work & are truly fucking insane

Stephen Miller said people being "registered in two states" is evidence of a big voter fraud problem. Some people registered in two states: pic.twitter.com/rB9UHOHWmf

Like most of the alt-right, Stephen Miller is what happens when literally every woman rejects you.

Stephen Miller, who has neo-nazi ties, is spreading fake news about voter fraud. The aim? Pass laws that will suppress Democratic votes! pic.twitter.com/CRgwHhHmRj

Stephen Miller was that guy in your American history class who said, "actually, the Civil War was about agriculture."

Yes, he’s creepy. We should listen to that little voice inside that says, “yes. this is a creepy, fascist, bastard.”
Ok. I am going to go ahead and say out loud what a lot of you are thinking…this Stephen Miller fellow is kind of creepy. https://t.co/8zDhQ6R8UV

Of course, Twitler was quite pleased with Miller’s willingness to be the face of American fascism.
Congratulations Stephen Miller- on representing me this morning on the various Sunday morning shows. Great job!

And… while we’re on the subject. Um… No. “Sean Spicer” is not “always 100% correct.” In fact, not even close.
According to Politifact, of all Spicer’s statements, only his assertion “the last time Republican U.S. Senate candidates “beat more than two (incumbents) was 1980.” was noted as “true.” The rest of Spicer’s statements fall under “false” to “pants on fire” – including Twitler’s oft-repeated “voter fraud” claims.
I’m sure, by the time Spicer is fired and/or resigns in disgrace, this list will be a helluva lot longer.
In the meantime, America. Stay strong. Stay motivated. Stay engaged. We’re in for a bumpy ride.Click here for reuse options!
